### Summary

Elayn Martin-Gay believes "every" student can succeed and that is the motivating force behind her best-selling texts and acclaimed video program. With Martin-Gay you get 100% consistency in voice from text to video! "Prealgebra 5e "is appropriate for a 1-sem course in Prealgebra, and was written to help students effectively make the transition from arithmetic to algebra. To reach this goal, Martin-Gay introduces algebraic concepts early and repeats them as she treats traditional arithmetic topics, thus laying the groundwork for the next algebra course your students will take.
